ITV Horse Racing Tips for Saturday 3rd October at Newmarket & Redcard

ITV racing schedule

The feature race of this weekend doesn’t happen until tomorrow when Enable tries to make history and win her third Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp, but there is good action on Saturday’s ITV Racing and Henry has picked a bet from each race.

The feature on today’s cards is the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket and we also have Group 3 action from Ascot as well. Racing is also taking place at Redcar and you will find all our ITV Racing tips for Saturday below.



Bet £10 on the first ITV Race today (1.40pm Newmarket)

You will get a free £5 be for EACH of the next seven races.

That means you spend £10 and get £35 in free bets for today’s action.

1:40 Newmarket

The first race live on ITV today is the 1:40 race from Newmarket. It is an Auction Stakes in which last time out winner for the column Mighty Gurkha heads the market at a short price. 30 runners go to the post so 6/4 seems on the short side to me.

I’m going to take a chance on a huge outsider here and that outsider is GEORGE SCOTT 33/1 EW. George Scott finished fifth on debut before finishing fourth on his second and last start. He shown great signs of improvement from one start to the next and I’m hopeful that can continue here. He is totally unexposed and the jockey booking of Jim Crowley certainly takes the eye for me here.


2:10 Newmarket

The 2:10 from Newmarket is next up for us and this is a fillies handicap over 1m2f. I think the favourite Oti Ma Boatie is a very good horse and she is bound to go close. The only thing that puts me off her here in the price.

I prefer BE MORE 10/1 EW as a betting proposition here. Be More relishes these conditions and that is backed up by the fact she has won all three starts on this ground. She’s a previous course and distance winner at Newmarket and that was in October last year which bodes well for this run today. Murphy and Balding team up together and at the prices she’s a great bet today.


2:45 Newmarket

It’s back to Newmarket for Group 1 action next, the Sun Chariot Stakes over the mile takes centre stage and it looks a cracking renewal. Champers Elysees heads the market for the Johnny Murtagh team after winning the Matron Stakes last time out.

However, I prefer the runner-up that day today and that is PEACEFUL 7/2. Peaceful has shown strong consistent form throughout the season including when she won the Irish 1000 Guineas impressively. It was no secret that she was expected to come on for the run last time out behind the favourite and I think she can return to winning ways today with improvement now expected. The ground should be no problem for her and the stiff finish of Newmarket should play to her strengths as she is a strong stayer at the trip.


3:25 Redcar

We head to Redcar next for their feature race of the year. It is the 2-year-old Trophy which is a listed race over 5f.

It’s LULLABY MOON 11/2 NB for me here. The selection gets in here off a lovely racing weight and his last time out third in a Group 3 contest reads well in this contest. Ralph Beckett is in fine form and he teams up with a jockey I really like here in Rossa Ryan. The ground will also hold no fears.
